[compiz] Blur problems

2007-07-17 Thread Dario Zanzico

I'm using compiz compiled for feisty by trevino, on a mobility radeon x1600
using fglrx 8.38.6 over Xgl 7.2.0.
I'm experiencing some problems with the blur: after a short time using
compiz the blur over
the windows (most noticeably the terminal) becomes a opaque gray. I really
don't know how to debug this problem... :(
I'll be happy to give any information you'll need

I have the same problem with a mobility radeon M300 and the same driver.
I don't use trevino packages, but I compile compiz from git almost
every day. Maybe (another) driver bug?

bye

Disable the video plugin and restart compiz. For some reason with Xgl
it seems to break alpha.

Disabling video doesn't work for me.
After using blur for a while, alpha doesn't work anymore.

OK, let me know if anything changed related to this now that Ioannis
issue is fixed.


I managed to resolve this issue (so far) by removing
--indirect-rendering from my startup line.

I think the causes of my crash were probably the same,
but the underlying reason was different.

 Focus blur works perfectly (although only with 4xBilinear)

Using a source blur filter with radius greater than one texel is not

 When I start blurdemo, that works too.  The problem is that sometimes
 changing the filter type crashes compiz.  If I run it under a debugger
 it starts working again.  All the filter types work with blurdemo.

Any more details you can provide related to this crash would be useful.

 
 Blurset also works in that it sets the hint on the window, but the
 window does not get blurred.  The only applications that work are
 gnome-terminal and blurdemo.

Destination blur was only allowed on windows with an alpha channel
before but I've changed that now.

Its not a problem, but its good to know :)

I have just been playaing around with the options and
I have managed to replicate something similar.

Unfortunately there is not too much to go on, other than
this error.

compiz: blur: failed to load blur program

[compiz] Blur problems

2007-02-19 Thread Mike Dransfield

I am having a few problems with blur which I notice other people
are having too.

Focus blur works perfectly (although only with 4xBilinear)

When I start blurdemo, that works too.  The problem is that sometimes
changing the filter type crashes compiz.  If I run it under a debugger
it starts working again.  All the filter types work with blurdemo.

Blurset also works in that it sets the hint on the window, but the
window does not get blurred.  The only applications that work are
gnome-terminal and blurdemo.

I am using nvidia 6800XT with nvidia binary drivers (9631 - but also
same effect with 9742) with xorg 7.2
